2014 Dallas International Film Festival: Trust Me
Trust Me follows flailing agent Howard Holloway, whose own failed career as a young actor makes him a natural fit for the scheming world of Hollywood agents. Yet, despite—nay, because—of his good intentions, Howard is unable to find even a smidgen of success, bumbling through one failed interaction onto the next. Howard unexpectedly stumbles upon a new prospect: Lydia, a tremendously talented and currently unrepresented 14-year-old. Determined to succeed for once in his life, Howard resolves to do whatever it takes to build Lydia's career and to protect her from her mercurial (and frequently intoxicated) father, Ray.
